'm never going to complain to jerry brown, what he to happen in the state legislature, because i used the first year and a half to insulate myself from all of that, emotionally as well as programmatically to say i'm not going to let the state hurt our city or the federal government. we've got to innovate our way out of this economic dole drum and we are doing so with inviting people here. those of you who take this word challenge, and really can really seriously bring that to fore with your best ideas, this is what i'm doing with all these technology companies. i'm not satisfied with just hosting a new company in the city, i want to know what they're doing, who's working there, where they're coming from, what they plan for the five or 10 years and how we can help them grow. as they're growing their jobs i want to know technologically how we can help. that's why i love going to accelerators, to find out what are the next five years that we're incubating so when it comes like what happened last week with dr. yam naka working at gladstone institute at mission bay becomes one of the newes
. >> thank you. and i'm glad to see the fliers that you've -- i guess the samples you have given us. just in looking at the samples, and i know you're just developing your materials i notice that it does repeat a lot that the energy provided by cleanpower sf will be 100% renewable and clean. i think it might be useful when explaining that to mention that -- what the benefit of that is. that the power isn't going to come from power plants that create soot and cause childrens' asthma, and the reasons that many people in the community have for not wanting power plants in their community whether it's in san francisco or across the bay in another community as we saw with the trandzs bay cable. this enables people not to get the power from the power plants and enables the power plants not so much demand for them. i think it might be obviously not in such a complicated long way, but just to point out it's not just that it's clean and from solar and wind and that it's not from soot creating power plants. >> that's a point well taken to make sure we don't lose the opportunity to educate about
painful experience of my life he was booked on a charge of resisting arest. his attorney says police used excessive force. >> i assumed they saw the video of this incident. and they refused to file it. they said no.ziñ gillson posted this video on you tube about three weeks ago. says it's received about half a million hits. police chief declined to talk to us on camera but in a phone conversation says it video doesn't speak for itself. the post posted was edited. internal affairs determined the officer acted within policy. >> i think a picture says a thousand words. >> we showed this individual yes to don cam ran, teaching classes on the use of force. he says gillson was not resisting or trying to escape. but says domestic violence is a serious crime and had not been frisked yet for a weapon. this is what caught his eye. gillson looking over his left shoulder, lowering his arms. a possible reason for firing a taser. >> officers see someone that traces them, and next thing hands start to move. that is a pors site. red frag for officers. >> and cameron tells us in this case, he doesn't t
, and thanking the mayor and our supervisors. [ applause ] what i usually like to do is to remind all of us that this is sacred ground. the people who came before most of us, the native people who came before us believed that this ground was sacred and no one is an owner. we are stewards of this ground. the dirt that you are going to play in and plant in is the legacy that those people have left us. it's really appropriate, i think that we have gone to all corners of the city. we have gone east and south and west and we conclude here in the north with our final blessing of this land here in north beach, the home of so many wonderful poets and authors, writers, who bring great honor to this land. and there is nothing that i can think of more honorable than a library that will bring together all of the worlds that we know and many worlds that we don't yet know will all be on this land for all of us for years to come. thank you so much for your support. we're going to continue to need it as we go forward building. thank you. [ applause ] >> thank you, jule. i see another former library commiss
and to ask if school district officials can help us think through. we need to think on the city and what we can do to be the type of partner that the city and county ought to be with vis-a-vis the san francisco unified school district. so i'm very interested in this conversation as well. i want to make a moment and thank all of you for being part of this conversation, particularly the young folks who are here. because your voices, a-g for a lot of folks, people can intellectualize it, but it is helpful to hear how it impacts the lives of students and your future. so thank you for being here. x thank you very much. and again, i think it's important for us to continue this conversation. i don't know that we have to do it within the context of this item and i think there are different ways of structuring the discussion. so i would ask that we file this item, if we could have a motion by commissioner fewer. seconded by commissioner mendoza. if we can do that without objection. i will certainly bring this issue back and i think it makes sense for us to do so after -- sometime after the novem
happy that all of you could come out and join us, you know, on this evening. my namey. the director of the night rover challenge. i'm going to kind of be the moderator for tonight, as we go through this first-ever challenge america summit. so i've got just a few things that, you know, i wanted to do with everyone, before we get into the program. first of all, i just want to take a minute and have everyone just look around this room. in this room, we have amazing people that are corporate, nonprofit, and government, all focused on challenge driven innovation in some way or another. this is a really powerful,interf people that are gathered here to look at how competitions can drive innovation. that's what tonight is all about, is, you know, the next step in creating a real wave of innovation. my job tonight is just to give you a little bit of background on what we are, what we're tiqp)q)s that we have.roup of so just to get going with that, i want to tell you a little bit about this thing called the night rover/< challenge. this is a collaboration between the clean tech open, unoodle,
meeting, can you give us a little more information what that will look like so that we have a better sense of what it is that we're going to try to accomplish? >> barbara hale, assistant general manager for power. what i am proposing and ms. miller and i have not yet had an opportunity to discuss this more fully. i understand the commission secretaries have talked and it's a to do on our list just to talk further. what we would like to propose is to address the time line for providing service, and to give you a flavor of some of the key steps, key activities that have to occur for us to be able to go forward, and to discuss the scope, geographic scope and size of the program and customer base we would be proposing to offer service to in the first phase, both through preenrollment program and the opt out portion of the program so it's those two primary items we have at the puc on our list to discuss with you. miss miller, did you have anything to add or subtract? >> i thought we would talk about marketing and outreach and an item and providing a schedule and have the consultant come if th
for that project, if any. so it is an item that needs to come before us. whether we can do something with it or not, i think we still need to have some transparency about that. >> yeah. i agree, commissioner, that i think it is a discussion we should have. i personally would like to get a tour of the facilities that are out there and any other commissioner that wants to familiarize himself with it. because it seems that we have a permanent place on this agenda that it's talked about. whether we like it or not. so maybe we can like it a little more. >> i actually don't know where they are. i would like to -- >> yeah, we -- >> okay. >> and in fact, we did -- when i first came on as commissioner we did do a tour of the facilities. it was laid out what was going to go where, what was going to be done, some resources. possible resources there were. then it just -- then it was just dropped. this was some time ago. i think it would be good to have other commissioners go on the tour and, you know, kind of get brought up to date on what's happened with that project. >> okay. >> is there any public comment o
allows us to remain on the premises until may of 2015. so the one agreement, that has us exiting, would call for an early exit by no later than february 4, 2013. in consideration for that early exit, we've negotiated a payment to cover the cost of the move itself, as well as the increased cost of occupancy because rental rates have increased since we struck the agreement at 875 stevenson. so that's sort of where we're at, and why we're leaving. the other question is where we're going. so we have, at 875 stevenson street our repromail operations, treasurer tax collector, assessor, recorder, business property division, department of public works, bureau of street use and mapping, human resources, department of public works and general services agency, as well as city attorney's office claims division. all within the footprint of 875 stevenson. the majority of those folks would move to one location, 1155 market street where we have negotiated a new lease. 1155 market street was the headquarters location of the sf puc. so you may recall they occupied both that building and the buildi

organizations, using community meetings. i would say that prior to our new direction from the board we had conceived of a more media centric approach and now i think it's more hand to hand engagement if you will that we really need to incorporate more into the program, and largely focused at that preenrollment part of the communication, but there is more to come on that as we develop it with bringing our contractor on board. thank you. >> commissioner schmeltzer. >> thank you. and i'm glad to see the fliers that you've -- i guess the samples you have given us. just in looking at the samples, and i know you're just developing your materials i notice that it does repeat a lot that the energy provided by cleanpower sf will be 100% renewable and clean. i think it might be useful when explaining that to mention that -- what the benefit of that is. that the power isn't going to come from power plants that create soot and cause childrens' asthma, and the reasons that many people in the community have for not wanting power plants in their community whether it's in san francisco or across the
. let's get right to 7 news weather anchor spencer christian who is tracking the storm on radar for us tonight. >> here's live doppler 7 hd and rainfall quite steady up in the north bay throughout the day into the evening hours now shifting south to east through the central part of the bay area and there are wet spots out there which is giving you reason for caution. you can see a line of showers and rainfall. some light to moderate. maybe local heavy downpour through novato and sonoma out to vallejo and moving into san francisco. let's close in in marin county south to tiburon and down to the marina area of san francisco. we have got an area of pretty steady rain fall right now and we expect to it expand over the next couple hours and reach other parts of the bay area. this has been the pattern as we loop the radar over the last 3 hours. moving east and south than it had been doing early in the day. all of us will have wet areas by early morning. rainfall total past 24 hours over 4 inches in novato. inch in santa rosa. see most of it has been in the north bay. about to get a n
, jeanine is live and tell us about this manhunt and how this is affecting traffic. >> that's right, no cars are being allowed and you can see it is closed between campbell all the way to arizona because police are investigating a shooting and suching for a suspect. chp told us this was an officer involved shooting and they say all officers should be on the lookout for a tan honda. they were making a traffic stop when the shooting took place and at this point it is unknown if anything took place and they have been gathering evidence and taking pictures. we have seen at least one bullet casing on the ground. people who live nearby are being stopped by the police tape and they have lots of questions because they say shootings just don't happen here. >> having any kind of violence or shooting in this neighborhood is very rare so you know it is kind of scary that -- you know i hope people are okay and -- yeah, i have a lot of questions. >> there are three schools in this vicinity and they say this will be a traffic nightmare because many people use this area to get to school and to get too and f
a morning, excessive rainfall rates, gusty winds still effecting us. here you can pick out the coverage out there. you will notice we are seeing changes in the north bay. the rainfall rates tapering after as you can see but still steady rain for santa rosa, around the area as well. as we shift the maps down here you will notice more activity for the central portions of the bay, heavier rain around san francisco as you cap pick out, a moderate cell moving through and covering the whole east bay. in fact here you can see more activity around the livermore area. we will continue to move the maps and show you ax in the southern half, pacifica, los gatos and san jose and morgan hill and tighter to the santa cruz mountains that is the concern of course, a rough mourning all day long for highway 17 for the summit and still seeing some moderate to heavy rainfall here as well. so once again the wider perspective here as you can see across the regions the main bulk of the action is drifting moving south and east and that trend will continue so we expect a change over the next two to three hours with
, the competitor. the other thing i didn't get to talk in the previous item that was alarming to us right now what staff is telling us is that their intention is to always have the commercial customers be an opt in. and in mirren they did not do it that way. they included commercial customers recently in their full opt out process. in san francisco most of the energy is used by commercial customers. we will not be able to achieve that big beautiful build-out that we're planning without those commercial customers being put into an opt out so enough of them stay in to get the bonding ability and the economies of scale to make sure that we can do the full build out and hire the thousands of people, et cetera. thanks. >> you said that marin opt in? >> no, marin, they did their initial thing a couple of years ago. they just completed their enrollment and enrolled all of their customers a few months ago, and that included commercial customers who were then able to opt out if they wanted to. but they enrolled everybody. and i know that -- yes. >> president torres: okay. have any further comments? no? mot
many of the job opportunities. and even at the tail end, what was given to us were jobs where nobody else could do it. and i can relay this project by project, and i have before harlan kelly, ed harrington, karen cubic, tyrone ju, and they kind of understand about this situation. now, what we have here is we have the hrc abruptly transferring compliance officers who deal with lb situations and other compliance officers to the city administrator's office. then you have you guys in the middle of the situation changing the rules without really getting the input from the lbes. nobody who is not a san franciscan should come here and say, i spoke to some lbes in san francisco and they kind of agree to go with the flow. that doesn't work. we don't want to badger sfpuc. but the fact is we lost on the waste system improvement project, and we were not, i repeat, not lose on the sewer system improvement project. because i have over 500 young men, i brought some of them here. i don't want to fill this chamber with some strong men. i don't want to go there, but we will not lose unless we have mea
. >> supervisor chu. >> thank you. i do want thank supervisor wiener for bringing this legislation to us and the thoughtful comments. i also want to thank members of the public that came to speak. i listened intently for those for and against the legislation. i will be supporting the legislation. what was compelling to me was the people that lived in the neighborhood. there were people that live and oppose the legislation and i recognize that from the comments today but the idea of a sense of community, people from all walks of life, whether you're a family, whether you didn't have a family and be safe and comfortable in the neighborhood was something that was very compelling to me, so i just wanted to express that. i think someone who is against it also said this is a community we want to be part of and it's one where you can live and respect each other and i do think because of how people feel strongly about public nudity it's important that the respect goes in all directions and a space that is comfortable for everybody and that's the reasons why i am supporting the legislation.
there -- i think it's useful to spend time briefing folks on the rules of engagement are from that legislative effort as much as we know them, but it won't be exactly the same experience because of that. >> well i think that it would be helpful to have that context. i think that would be useful -- i imagine for both commissions to do that. ms. miller. >> and i am just assuming and barbara i know we will talk off line that we will have an update on shell and mobile energy if there are issues or status of where we are with those two contracts. >> great. colleague any other questions? again we want to thank staff and puc for their presentation. we have taken public comment on this item. why don't we now go to item six. >> item six public comment. members of the public may address the commission on matters that are within their jurisdiction and not on today's agenda. >> any public comment? seeing none public comment is closed. item seven. >> item seven future agenda items. >> and now i would like -- oh commissioner avalos. >> sure. thank you chair campos. just -- i of havin
morning, thank you for waking up with us, this monday morning, november 25th, i am pam -- november 25th, -- november november 26th. >> and here is tara. >>> thanks, steve, here is a look at 280 and actually we have no fog so that is good news. bay point, that area is also looking fog free at this hour and those headlights are westbound as folks make their way towards concord and the  dense fog advisory is making for a tough commute on the bay bridge. lorraine blanco is live at the toll plaza with what drivers are dealing with that, hello. >> reporter: hello, tara, you can see it is extremely foggy behind me and you can barely see the light poles behind me and beyond that, tolls are not visible. be prepared for a lost breaking and also on the side streets, you couldn't see signs this morning and driving through a good part of the east bay is a challenge this morning. we shot video near emoryville and mcarthur maze. and an advisory is in effect here as well as the golden gate bridge, -- golden gate bridge, richmond san rafael and dinesh why bridges and remember to give yourself -- and v
and evening. i'm here in petta luma. folks here using this break between systems that is to gather up sandbags. most people here today have had experience with homes and their businesses flooding before. first sis till rolled through and left signsoc[x behind. like here, along occidental, camp meeker road. the fire department had to come out and clear tree autos we had a couple trees coming down. the storm started getting ground dirty. and wet. and they fall. we get out here and pick them up, every time.a6ld >> heavy rain didn't cause a lot of problems but did produce minor flooding like here. a common trouble spot in the winter. downtown, residents loaded up some sandbags to protect property. next series of systems steps up off the northern california coast. >> in the past 15 years, at least two, three times the building has gone underwater. >> try toss get 50 back. >> why? >> there are many doors around the building. just a different number will not be enough. >> a large numberr?=p of carps -- tarps went out of the door. >> waiting for the storm. and then, everybody wants to jump on it. >>
this regional commitment and that's what's before us now. the carpenters that show up today, they're not necessarily from the san francisco local. that's local 22. that's pat mull i began. -- mulligan. i was negotiating for 261 members who live in marin county. so, we've always been kind of confronted with this what's good for san francisco versus what's good for working people in general. and i'm sensitive to that. we support local hires, for example, to the detriment of the union members that live outside of this county. those union members that live in san mateo county and those union members that live in marin county. the item before us, i see is slated to go before the san francisco board of supervisors. those officials, they don't have those same concerns. they solely represent or concern themselves with the plight of working people who live here in this town. that is why i'm inclined to move this item along for their consideration. because while i always love to see a whole bunch of big strong working guys in a room, i think the conversation probably is better had over ther
is coming straight at us wind coming from every direction, sideways from the top, feels like it is coming from the ground sometimes. we have seen two transformers blow this morning. the main concern off of highway 17 the morning commute, traffic picking up, so are cars' speeds. you would think in weather like this, drivers would be taking heed, dryers are used to the drive, they do it everyday, they can probably to it in their sleep. -- probably do it in their sleep. you would hope they would be cautious in weather like this. there are signs warning drivers to slow down, trees down pull pulled to the side not blocking the road, but a good sign what this weather can do, there's a lot of standing water, we hope our viewers heading out to work or school on this friday morning take heed, proceed with caution, plan ahead for extra time this morning, that's the latest from los gatos. kira klapper, abc7 news. >>> [ inaudible ] >> right now we have on the phone line with us, tracy with caltrans to fill us in on the questions we have. >> good morning tracy thanks for joining us. what is going on o
and in the capacity of the state government to make some wise investments that will benefit all of us. that is what proposition 30 was all about. >> proposition 30 now the first general tax the californians have passed in two decades. voting to tax themselves. here's the results of a competing measure proposition 38. you can see here it went down in defeat 28 percent wanting in but a whopping 72 percent say no to proposition 38. it would increase the income tax rate on a lot of californians 14 years of nearly $18 billion per year. >> the election now cooling down so is our weather erica has a look at our forecast. good morning erica. >> good morning to you any. cool conditions on tap fog along the coastline. some issues of visibility not too bad as we take it outside to our mount tam cam. we will see the sun shine that will be evident. breezy conditions temperatures will drop off. later in the evening hours the fault will return and we will see an increase and cloud cover. >> here's a look at your numbers 49 napa. 48 in nevada. low fifties for vallejo concord. 57 of around our bay shore is. into th
280 freeway to ocean avenue is a critical part of our long range -- for us long range 10 year planning process for ocean avenue. the freeway is often makes many people on ocean avenue's retail district feel they're on a freeway ramp rather than on a neighborhood street. reconfiguring that ramp is going to create land. that land should be not simply ignored as a forest of trees which it is now but part of a major planning process based in the community to figure out the best uses for that land in order to deal with dividing or separating off the freeway mentality with the retail district neighborhood situation, and we're trying to organize the planning process, but i think we really need to work with the city on this. another reason to do this process if we don't the surplus land created is sold off to the highest bidder by cal trans and that is not appropriate and city college has an important role to play here and they most likely will be the people that inherit this land but we shouldn't just give it to them without understanding of w
